“As an MBA grad, I remember being pushed out of my comfort zone when I was elected class representative. As an introvert, this seemed so out of my norm thing that eventually I ended doing a great job out of it. This incident was so feeble yet had a lasting impact on me.
Shortly after conceiving with my first kid, I resigned from my job from the corporate and became a full-time mom. And as soon as the baby was born, I and my husband began our search for organic natural care products that we could use on our toddler but to no avail.
It was this drive that eventually pushed us to try and start our own thing. I started to attend classes on organic soap making and eventually started to make my own formulations. Multiple google attempts and failed experiments later, we could make our own formulations and I started distributing parts of it to friends and relatives around me.
The feedback I received was pretty encouraging and my husband, being a business person himself, convinced me to try and start my own entrepreneurship venture. Fighting through my initial inhibitions, I eventually set out to make my mark on this world and sent my products into the world.
And the experience of that is something I find so fulfilling and complete. People come back to me and tell me how years of suffering from various conditions came to an end after using my products. Since all my products are completely organic and natural and based on kitchen essentials, they became an instant hit with everyone.
People even place orders for customised soaps with me and use my products on newborn babies. It shows the level of trust and belief they hold and I have to thank my husband and my immediate support group for having this level of belief in me. This also brought in fame and recognition in the form of awards and certificates.
I also started a podcast venture but I haven’t been able to be active there but for now, I am glad for the way things have turned out. And I hope to continue doing what I love the most.”
